Spotlight On... Colby!!

COLBY!!!  Don't you just want to snatch him up and squeeze him tight??

Oh, what a sweetie pie!!!  Colby has Down Syndrome, and Patent Ductus Arteriosus.  What that means is that a fetal blood vessel, an important one, that connects the aorta and the pulmonary artery, doesn't close at birth like it's supposed to.  It can lead to some serious complications in life, although, thankfully, it hasn't so far for Colby.  But it will, some day.

From Colby's Reece's Rainbow page:

Colby is a precious boy who has been diagnosed with Down Syndrome and Patent Ductus Arteriosus (Congenital Heart Defect). From observation, the heart condition has no obvious affect on daily life.
Colby is active, extroverted, and smiles often. When Colby hears music on the radio, he dances with joy. He does well in dance class and has a good sense of rhythm. Colby also enjoys playing games with other children and likes to watch cartoons.
Colby sounds like such a fun boy!! I hope his family can see past the scary big words, to see the little prince within.

 Colby has a pretty good grant going!  Right now, he's sitting at $2,872.  I bet we can do better than that, though!

Will you please pray about donating to Colby's grant?  Will you please share this post, or his Reece's Rainbow page?   The more people that see Colby, the greater chance he has of being chosen.  And, most of all, will you cover Colby in prayer?  Pray that his heart holds up.  Pray that his Forever Family finds him quickly, and that they're ready and able to get him right away, to get him the care that he so desperately needs.
